Our Lady of Lebanon, Jounieh

Looking out over the bay of Jounieh toward Beirut, Our Lady of Lebanon attracts Christian and Muslim pilgrims from around the world.

Ride the cable car to the top of the hill, located 650 m (2132.5 ft) above sea level, then climb the sloping 19th-century stairway to the base of the statue, where a panoramic view of the city rewards your efforts.

  • Beautiful view at night. Quite a climb to the top, but the incline was not too steep. Visitors were quiet and reverent.  more »
  • Is the place of worship (mariano) for Christians Maronites of Lebanon. You don't expect an opulent Baroque church or similar, is a simple, small church, with a tower topped by a statue. You have to be believers and admirers of intensified religiousness to capture the beauty of the place, while you will see the whole extraordinary panorama, Beirut. You can go on site with a taxi/car or with a cable. One tip, there is a cafeteria and a financial counselor. OK la focacceria, but coffee is bad.

  • If you can make your way all the way to the top, the view alone is BREATHTAKING. I will definitely come to visit Our Lady of Lebanon every time I visit home. I also was able to purchase a mini ceramic Our Lady statue from the souvenir store. Amazing experience. Love it and will be back again.
  • For me it's the best place on earth. Very quite place where one can pray in peace. Breathtaking view from the top of our Lady. Night visit is highly recommended
  • Pretty nice area, and great environment. However, didn't feel very spiritual and too commercial. However, still a great area to spend time with family and friends.
  • Must see in Lebanon. Beautiful view, enjoyed the experience up the gondola, prices are fair.
  • A cute little chapel with a nice view from the top
